Top Critic Average
It may be a bit on the “no frills” side of things but don’t be fooled, MXGP 2019 offers some of the most satisfying racing available. Just don’t be put off by the initial punch in the face from the game’s difficulty.
MXGP 2019 received some key upgrades in relation to bike and rider physics, game modes and in the UI department, but I am not sure that is enough to describe it as an absolute must-have title for your rotation. Having all the licensed drivers and bikes for MXGP 2019, and the inclusion of the track creator, help justify the purchase for me. However, the lack of career mode improvements, thin online options and average overall depth hold the title back just a bit. In the end, there is some fantastic racing and robust AI here for those who do decide to pick up MXGP 2019.
If you own MXGP Pro, don't feel pressured to buy Milestone's newest outing. Despite that, MXGP 2019 reaffirms that the MXGP series is one of the best racing series out there.

MXGP 2019 is a fantastic motorcross experience that caters to both simulation fans, as well as arcade racers. The visual details, physics engine, and performance optimisation have all been improved, making MXGP 2019 one of the best Milestone games so far.
Milestone is finding in MXGP the ideal place to experiment with new features and this year's game demonstrates that they can do it successfully.

OK MXGP 2019 does the job and it does it pretty well. Evidenced by the new free mode offered to players. But the rest continues to capitalize on gains that are starting to age. Today, you have to create stories around the races and make them more realistic by reducing the line between the real and the virtual.

I can definitely recommend MXGP 19 to newcomers who are intrigued by the sport or are looking for a different kind of racing fix. It’s not the best racing I’ve done this year, but I found myself enjoying the time I spent working through the season mode (even if its structure was boring) and all the noodling around in Playground mode was entertaining.
MXGP 2019 is a safe bet for those looking to race with the full weight of the real MXGP behind the game. It’s a mostly by-the-numbers dirt biking game, with some modernity thrown in.
MXGP 2019 sees a lot of improvements over prior installments, mainly showing signs of the series developing a personality. The history of motocross and supercross has yet to be explored in this series, which has many stories to tell. The graphics and physics lead the game, but the audio takes an unfortunate backseat. MXGP 2019 – The Official Motocross Videogame is backed by a fantastic simulation engine making it all the reason you should play it.
After MXGP Pro settled into a hardcore dirt biking niche, MXGP 2019 surprisingly steps away from that feel just one year later. It tries to combine multiple elements like track creation and player challenges, while still representing an official championship and gets lost on the way. It's neither an arcade racer nor a serious simulator and the end result is quite bland.
While the attempts to inject a bit of life into the series with a semi open-world mode and a track editor are laudable, the game itself is just too familiar. Newcomers might appreciate what the MXGP 2019 has to offer, but anyone who's played any previous game in the series will just feel like they've seen it all before
